CAPE TOWN - The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) says its reports into two police shootings involving Nando’s and McDonald's workers has been handed over to the Western Cape's Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

Ipid has concluded its investigations into the shooting in Blue Downs that led to the death of two McDonald’s employees, and a separate Dunoon shooting where a Nando’s employee was fatally shot.

Both incidents took place less than two weeks apart, earlier this year.

It's still unclear whether any officers have been found guilty of any wrong-doing in the shooting incidents.

Ipid's Moses Dlamini says: “In respect to both matters, there’s been consultation with the DPP. The Nando’s matter was already sent to the DPP. The investigation into McDonald’s matter has been concluded and the docket, along with the memo that goes with the docket, is being prepared with a huge submission in the next coming days.”
